  • Principles of what the IETF wants
    • The IETF mission is to make the Internet work better
    • Implementations help the Internet work better
    • Information dissemination helps the Internet work better
    • False representations cause confusion, and confusion harms the Internet
  • Questions to answer
    • What are our principles for IETF document protection?
    • What methods do we use to achieve them?
      • What rights should authors grant the IETF?
      • What rights should IETF grant the community?
  • Legally impossible
    • IETF asserting rights that authors have not granted to the IETF*
    • IETF attempting to restrict authors’ rights that they have not given away
    • IETF retracting rights granted to the public ”in perpetuity”
    * Note that the legal existence of ”the IETF” is a complex question
  • Obviously right
    • Open distribution of drafts and RFCs, unmodified
    • Ability to use IETF drafts and RFCs in IETF work
    • Ability to implement IETF protocols for anyone (at least from the IETF’s copyright angle)‏
  • Obviously wrong
    • RFCs that are modified, but claim to be the originals
    • Implementations that are noninteroperable, but use modified documentation to claim that they are OK
    • General principle: Don’t lie!
  • What can we do with copyright?
